Last night I feel like I experienced God's greatness in such a new way. I love how a worship song can put into words what your own words, thoughts, or emotions could never quite express. That is the beauty and the power of music. I take that back--it's the beauty and power of GOD through the instrument of music. There is no purpose greater than the purpose of glorifying Him. As the following song says, "You put the stars in the sky and you know them by name...You see the depths of my heart and you love me the same." If a God so big, who put the stars into place, knows me inside and out and still loves me the same, despite my sinful human nature, how great is He? He deserves more than what we could ever offer Him even if we gave Him everything! I hope someday you get the chance to sing Him the following two songs of praise--and if you can't sing them someday, here are the lyrics so you can offer them up to him as a gift.

Indescribable by Laura Story

From the highest of heights to the depths of the sea
Creation's revealing Your majesty
From the colors of fall to the fragrance of Spring
Every creature unique in the Song that it sings
All exclaiming

Chorus 1:
Indescribable, uncontainable,
You put the stars in the sky and you know them by name.
You are amazing God!
All powerful, untameable,
Awestruck we fall to our knees and we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God


Verse 2:
Who has told every lightning which way it should go
Or seen heavenly storehouses laden with snow
Who imagined the sun and gave source to its light
Yet conceals it to bring us the coolness of night
None can fathom


Chorus 2:
Indescribable, uncontainable,
You put the stars in the sky and you know them by name.
You are amazing God!
Incomparable, unchangeable
You see the depths of my heart and you love me the same
You are amazing God!



How Great Is Our God by Chris Tomlin, Jesse Reeves, Ed Cash
Verse 1:
The splendor of a King, clothed in majesty,
Let all the earth rejoice, all the earth rejoice.
He wraps Himself in light, and darkness tries to hide
And trembles at His voice, trembles at His voice.
Chorus:
How great is our God, sing with me,
How great is our God, all will see
How great, how great is our God.
Verse 2:
Age to age He stands, and time is in His hands,
Beginning and the end, beginning at the end.
The Godhead, three in one: Father, Spirit, Son,
The Lion and the Lamb, the Lion and the Lamb.
Bridge:
Name above all names,
Worthy of all praise,
My heart will sing
How great is our God.
